Illustrations, rather than photographs, were used to represent each Herman Miller classic product. Products were shipped to the artists’ studios where they “lived with their object”, then created their interpretation of the piece of furniture. The brochure served as an introduction of Charles and Ray Eames’ last product design for Herman Miller, the Eames Sofa. Product specifications are revealed at the back of the brochure.
